Digitization drives Image Data Conversion growth in Saline

The world is full of more paperwork than anyone could, or want to, read in a lifetime. Image Data Conversion is building a business by digitizing all of it for the 21st Century.

The Saline-based company owns three subsidiaries that digitize documents. It acquired eBeam Film in 2011, launched Reveal Digital in 2011, and acquired NA Publishing in 2013. All of them are working to corner the digitizing markets, such as helping libraries put large collections online.

"Now they are generating more service offerings to help libraries solve the problems they have today," says Joe Mills, managing director of Image Data Conversion.

Specifically NA Publishing is working to digitize every issue of Publishers Weekly. That means cover-to-cover of each issue dating from 1872 to today.

That sort of work has allowed Image Data Conversion to notch double-digit revenue gains in each of the last couple of years. It has more than doubled its staff since 2010, going from 32 employees to 70 people today. It expects that growth curve to remain steady as it keeps moving forward this year.

"We are adding a lot of staff," Mills says. "We are investing a lot in these businesses."
